when you register your visa is your passport taken away from you for a few hours or are photo copies used in the registration process. i am in moscow for only 2 days so i did not really want to be sitting around waiting for my passport instead of sightseeing???

When staying in hotels I've had a photocopy taken when I've checked in and I've stayed in hotels where they keep your passport for a few hours/overnight. Carry your own photocopy if you're out & about during that time.

I have seen registration in hotels take anywhere from 5 minutes to overnight.

It depends on the type of hotel and how nicely you ask the receptionist.

Thanks for your reply guys,
so you mean its ok to carry a copy of your passport and visa while out and about in moscow. and if stopped by the police this will be suffice.

Not really, if you are staying in a hotel the registration can be done in about 30 minutes and I would not recommend you to leave your hotel without your passport, if you meet an arsey militia guy they could say "oh no passport, why? lost it, thrown it away, illegal in country ..." etc and they will shake you for money - while the chance is low you will be stopped its just not worth it.

If you are registering through our Moscow office then we give you an official company letter with all the stamps the authorities love that states we have your passport for registration.

Lol Godzilla's Hostel in Moscow sounds frightening! Ha ha.

Enjoy yourself Anton, I came back from St Petersburg yesterday, I took my passport and visa to Russian Holiday, it took just short of 3 hours for my Visa to be registered, just enough time to sit over the road have a bite to eat and a couple of jars.
